If it hits the net but does not go over then it is a sideout and the other team gets the ball. If it hits the net but goes over, it is playable and the other team must get it or lose a point.

Net is when a player serves the ball at the begging of a point and the ball hits the top of the net cord and bounces "in" the opponents service box. The point doesn't count and is then replayed.

What is the fewest number of times the ball has to go over the net to win women's Wimbledon title?

Very unlikely, but I believe the correct number would be 36 (in a normal 5-set match). If the first player earns an ace on their first serve for every point he/she serves, and the second player serves every ball into the net (because it technically isn't going OVER the net. If one counts the amount of times the ball is hit in the court, the minimum number would be 108.)

Can a racket cross over the net to the opponent's side?

"A player may break the plane of the net on a follow through from a shot as long as the ball was on that player's side of the court when the ball was struck. (The player can only reach over to play a ball in the situation stated in the paragraph below). The player in either situation may not touch the net, or the opponent's court with anything he wears or carries or with any part of the body. If the spin or wind brings the ball back over the net to the side of the player(s) who hit the shot, the opponent(s) may then reach over the net and play the ball. They may not touch the net or the opponent's court. This is the only situation when a player may reach over the net to play a ball. If the opponent does not play the ball and it bounces on the side of the player who hit the spin shot, that player who hit that shot wins the point." According to the rules, it is perfectly fine for the follow through on a swing of the racquet to cross the net as long as contact with the ball was on the player's side and not on the opponent's side, and contact was not made with the net by the striking player or their racquet. However, one cannot reach across the net to strike a ball that is on the opponent's side of the net except under on circumstance: If the ball originally bounced on the player's side of the net but due to back spin the ball wound up crossing back over the net, it is acceptable to then reach over the net and strike the ball prior to its hitting the ground as long as contact is not made with the net by the striking player's racquet or body.
